Child of ’76: 40th Birthday Card Design


1976 Birthday card: front cover

My friend Liz celebrated her 40th birthday last week and I made a card for her. The idea was to make a LP gatefold sleeve, filled with (mostly UK) culture from 1976.

Are you in need of a 40th birthday card for the friend who demands nothing but the best for their special day? Feel free to download (or email me to get the hi-res version) and use the card covers I compiled (after a lot of Google image thievery), and have them singing your praises all year.

I made the sleeve by folding a piece of A1 card, compiled the front and back covers in Photoshop, and stuck them all together.
